Why is the market capitalisation plummeting?

A massive sell-off by whales, which worsened in the final week of the month, had a key part in Bitcoin Cash's falling market capitalisation.

The steady climb in interest rates to help limit inflation, the aftermath from Russia's unjustified invasion of Ukraine, and investors' lack of risk appetite for digital assets were some of the causes ascribed to the market's decline.

On May 28, the number of major transactions utilizing BCH peaked at 154,840 at a price of $176.61.
